    chicken salsa chili

    so i got this recipe from a place called cafe latte here in saint paul. it totally amazing, super easy and really filling. i think the amount here makes about 6 or 8 regular size bowls, and one is enough for anyone!

    Caf้ Latte’s Chicken Salsa Chili

    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red chili pepper flakes
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
    • 2 teaspoons minced fresh jalapeno chili peppers
    • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
    • 3 tablespoons chili powder
    • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, undrained and broken up
    • 1 can (29 ounces) tomato puree
    • 2 cans (15 ounces each) dark red kidney beans drained
    • 1 can (15 ounces) hominy
    • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

    To make chili: Warm olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Saut้ chicken
    until cooked. Add onions and reduce heat. Cook for 3 minutes or until onions are tender.
    Add pepper flakes, garlic, jalapenos, chicken stock, chili powder, tomatoes and tomato
    puree, kidney beans and hominy. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

    To serve: Add chopped cilantro and limejuice just prior to serving. Adjust seasoning to
    taste. Top with sour cream, chopped red onions, grated cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.

    FYI: you dont need to use whole tomatoes, it works the same if they arent whole, or if you do buy the hole tomatoes just take a scissors put it in the can and cut up the tomatoes its way easier and faster than trying to cut them by hand

    oh, and hominy, for those of s who dont know (it took me forever to find it at the store because i had no clue what it was) is a type of maize/corn.

    if you like spicy-- use extra crushed red peppars and jalapenos-- if you save this and eat it after it sits for a day or so the spices start to catch up on you and it can get pretty spicy so watch out!!!

    Hope you like it! (and cafe latte gets all the credit!)
